UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Cannot compare to Olde Peninsula's Pumpkin Ale. Great bouquet but has a tendency to taste like flavored soda water toward the end of the beer. The finish is smooth but leaves a taste of spices in your mouth for hours. Re-rate, the more I have the more I disclike it. Too bad I bought a six pack. Re-rate: I cannot finish the six pack and must lower the rating. The aroma and appearance are great so I really can't lower them but overall the beer is just too much. Fizzy flavored water. Blah.

Bottle. Pumpkin pie spice aroma. Slightly acrid with a hint of biscuit. Pours a bit hazy with a orange color and no head to speak of. One dimensional flavor of spice with little pumpkin.Decent body. Slight bitter finish. Dissapointing as the originator of the style.

ELPADRINO (70) - The Woodlands, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Pours a light amber with 1/4 inch head. Head quickly disperses. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, and toothpaste... yes, toothpaste. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin and nutmeg. Aftertaste mixes pumpkin and hops. Body is watery, but with the heavy pumpkin taste, I donít think I could handle a full bodied version. Overall, this beer isnít for me. I wanted to try this seasonal brew for a different taste experience, and thatís exactly what I got. Unfortunately, this is the first beer Iíve tasted in a long time that I really havenít liked at all. The beer itself isnít brewed poorly; my personal preference is just in a different direction. Itís always fun to try something new, though!

BeerBunker (760) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a quickly dissipating off-white head. There is quite a bit of sediment floating around in this brew. Aroma is of muted pumpkin and spice. For some reason it smelled like plastic. This one isnít going to be good. Taste is of spice, slight pumpkin, plastic, and water. Mouthfeel is very watery and carbonated. Bland, tasteless, and watery. This is not a good beer.

I really love pumpkin beer but I can see now why some people might dislike this style. When people hear "pumpkin" they think of the fall season, spice, and maybe a little something sweet, thatís what comes to my mind anyway. This one is lacking in every category. The aroma has maybe just a little bit of pumpkin in there and the taste is pretty bland and flavorless. It might be a good "intro pumpkin beer" to give a first timer, but for me it really falls short of what I think a pumpkin beer should be.

12 oz bottle into English pint. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a fast disappearing head. Has a faint pumpkin pie aroma--should be more prounounced. Taste is sweet and sour with no bitterness. Has pumpkin pie flavor, but not as much as the best examples of the style. Itís like a pale lager with faint pumpkin pie spices thrown in. Medium-high carbonation, light-bodied. Definitely one of the worst pumpkin beers Iíve ever had.

This beer has strong aromas of spice, orange, caramel, and pumpkin pie. Orange in color with a slight cloudy appearance. Absolutely no head and no lacing. Hint of orange flavor but mostly taste like the raw pumpkin pie filling you buy in a can. Very oily in texture with no carbonation. Very watery for a pumpkin beer. Overall was excited to try after the awesome aroma but turned out to be a huge dissappointment.

merc7186 (2366) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The beer pours an amber, golden color with almost no head and no lacing at all. The beer smells like a mild pumpkin scent that lingers. The taste is overly carbonated carbonated and bubbly with a mild pumpkin back end. The mouthfeel is over carbonated and somewhat watery. Overall, this was one of the worst pumpkin ales Iíve ever a had. If you donít like pumpkin and want carbonation...then this is your beer.

reggiedunlop (3378) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a clear orange/amber with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Aroma has light pumpkin and a tangy sweetness that reminds me of ketchup. Flavor is tnagy with mild pumpkin and spice...still reminding me of ketchup...i hate ketchup. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is tangy/earthy with a touch of spice. Dislike.
